Seattle dismisses all marijuana-possession cases

That's a decision of the new city attorney, who says he won't bring any new cases, either, unless there are extraordinary circumstances. (A pot-smoking King Kong climbs the Space Needle, threatening to eat Bill Gates?) This is because Seattle voters passed a measure making pot possession the absolute lowest priority for law enforcement. On the state level, Washington is considering measures to decriminalize or legalize marijuana.

Last, but not least..Boulder seeks public comments!

The City of Boulder is seeking public comments on medical marijuana regulations the city should consider when their moratorium expires at the end or March.

THIS IS YOUR CHANCE! Often government ignores the will of the people, but maybe (just maybe), the City of Boulder might listen and take your views into account when they draft their proposed regulations.

For those that are for medical marijuana regulations that promote patients rights, please click here to learn more and play an active role is defining your community.

California on the path to legalize marijuana!

California is one step further along the path to legalize marijuana!

Read more here.

Each time our government, be it local, state or federal, recognizes the role marijuana plays in our society we are one step further towards legalization (or decriminalization.)

In this article I was particularly surprised at the numbers,"by some estimates, California's pot crop is a $14-billion industry, putting it above vegetables ($5.7 billion) and grapes ($2.6 billion). If so, that could mean upward of $1 billion in tax revenue for the state each year." (Quoting the LA Times.)

That's alot of green!

Great article by Jessica Corry!

Jessica Corry and her husband, Rob Corry, have long led the Colorado medical marijuana fight to protect mmj patients rights to safe access to medicine with dignity.

Here is a great article that highlights the recent battle between Sen. Romer and mmj activists.

Read the article here.

Sen. Romer claimed to have wanted to present a bill that would protect mmj patients and give law enforcement the guidance they need to determine legal and illegal marijuana. His proposed bill, since pulled, was an abomination that did not take patients rights into accounts.

After the outcry from mmj activists, he pulled the bill and blamed it on mmj activists unwillingness to participate in the process.

Well, we call BS on you, Sen. Romer! Unless your stance changes, you will find yourself with a large grassroots organization that will not vote for your gubernatorial ambitions.
